From the back of the 256-page, full-color, hardback rulebook:
"In the waters of the Caribbean are fortunes to be made and lost... or stolen!
In these times it takes courage and daring to carve out a niche and forge a new legend. Will you sail the high seas in search of fame and fortune, lead a band of buccaneers in search of booty, or captain a ship of the line in the service of King and country?
Pirates of the Spanish Main is a complete game based on WizKids' best-selling Constructible Strategy Game and the award winning Savage Worlds roleplaying game system. All the rules you need to play this game of fast and furious swashbuckling fun are in this book.
So set a course for adventure; fame and fortune await over the horizon."
